Nope, you're in a minority of one. The Defence Forces are the legitimate armed forces of Ireland.Anyone? Anyone at all???
What authority did the renegade Free State army (deserts and betrays an organization, country, or set of principles) that are now called the Defence Forces, have to attack the 32 county Irish Republic on June 28th 1922 - four days after the 'Pact' election votes were counted on June 24th - and suppress the real 32 county Dail Eireann two days before it was scheduled to meet to discuss the results of the 'Pact' election and dissolve on June 30th, and to form the new (3rd) 32 county Dail Eireann on July 1st. at 12 PM?
